No-Regrets Remodeling, Second Edition

How to Create a Comfortable, Healthy Home That Saves Energy

by The Editors of Home Energy Magazine

"From de-mystification to myth-busting to simple common sense, when it comes to remodeling, NRR2 lays it all out in a readable, reassuring way. This is the essential home-improvement guide that not only educates, but also acts as a healthy antidote to the natural anxiety inherent in any remodeling project. Save money, save time, save your relationship, and save your sanity—read NRR2 before you even think of lifting your pencil or hammer to renovate your home."

Jeff Wilson, HGTV Host and author of The Greened House Effect

The second edition of No-Regrets Remodeling will educate homeowners about opportunities for improving their home's energy efficiency and comfort at one of the most critical junctures in home ownership. That moment comes when homeowners are faced with the decision to remodel a recently purchased or existing home, or due to a component failure, need to upgrade their home's HVAC, appliances, lighting, or other energy-related systems.

No-Regrets Remodeling, Second Edition is not a technical guide for the pro or serious hands-on DIYer. It's oriented to the homeowner who wants to make the right decisions to improve their home's comfort, safety, durability, and energy savings, but isn't prepared to do more than simple weatherizing or efficiency measures.

No-Regrets Remodeling, Second Edition is valuable as a consumer-education tool for builders, remodelers, and home-performance retrofitters. But most importantly, No-Regrets Remodeling, Second Edition will educate homeowners on how to choose the right professional for the job.

No-Regrets Remodeling, Second Edition introduces homeowners to the concepts of whole-home performance, energy auditing, energy rating, and how HVAC systems and other elements of a home work together. No-Regrets Remodeling, Second Edition will help homeowners understand and control energy use in their homes, pointing out money-saving opportunities they can take advantage of now, as well as helping them plan for future upgrades when they can afford them.
